Q. What’s Involved in being a Fire Company Member ?
A. It’s not all about firefighting. In fact (thankfully) calls to extinguish fires are few and far between. What takes the time is preparation for those calls, when they do come.
Q. Am I required to be an ‘active’ firefighter ?
A. That is your choice and if you decide that’s something you want to do, we will provide all the needed training and equipment at no cost to you. There are plenty of support people needed at a scene as well.
Q. How can I help if I don’t want to fight fires ?
A. We are always in need of qualified MEDICAL personnel. If you don’t have any qualifications, but want to learn, we’ll get you that training. There are various levels from ‘First Responder’ to ‘Emergency Medical Technician – EMT’ to ‘Paramedic’.
